Yep, you heard me right, there’s a small town south of Culpeper [the name still gives me the shivers] about 70 miles south of Washington DC called – Lahore. It’s right there in the center of the triangle formed by Culpeper, Fredericksburg and Charlottesville.

He has lofty ideas of creating a super-sized tourist attraction showcasing the histories of both towns, running a bed-and-breakfast serving chickpeas along with eggs and bacon. He’s got architectural designs drawn up and he’s even hired an Indian firm in Hyderabad to draw up some facades for the buildings he dreams of.

Only question is – Is rural VA ready to embrace a different culture in all of its 235 acres? His ambition and dream is heartwarming, maybe it would work great after all!
